Swelling after #Juvederm
We all can avoid these temporary side effects by injecting smaller amounts and adding to it a month or more later. I don't like to obligate patients to downtime when it is not necessary.
There is debate about whether fillers should be injected subcutaneously over the muscles of the temples, which has the advantage of getting more correction per unit volume injected, or injecting more deeply under the temporalis, which has the advantages of avoiding major vessels and nerves and getting a smoother correction. Neither is incorrect and there are many physicians in each camp. Personally, however, I prefer the latter.
My experience is that Scuptra injections work well to treat hollowness of temples, as does Radiesse.
Swelling and bruising is a normal side effect after injecting filler.
However, if this does not resolve or new symptoms appear seek attention from your Dr.

How to inject Juvederm and other fillers in the temples
The best technique for temple injections, and also the safest, is to inject deep to the muscle. There is less risk of bruising and swelling. More importantly, if fillers are injected superficial to the temporalis muscle, it can bulge out with each chewing motion as the muscle pushes the filler outward. This is most important when using Juvederm Voluma in the temples.
